The World Series of Poker $111,111 High Roller for One Drop 130 entrants and following four days of action. The final table of nine players resumed play exclusively on PokerGO on Monday, some taking advantage of the technology with friends monitoring the stream in the audience.
Of the nine players, Doug Polk, Martin Jacobson and Rainer Kempe had teams in the Brasilia Room following the action. Previously, players at the Main Event Final Table had the same technology available to use and with $3.6 million up top, it seems imperative to have a stream team.
Polk had Jason Les, Ryan Fee and Jason Mo on his rail following along. Jacobson had friends Mark Radoja and Mohsin Charania watching the stream and Rainer Kempe seemed to have the entire team of Germans to available – including, Fedor Holz, Stefan Schillhabel and Dominik Nitsche.
“Well I think that most people here have people relaying them the hands,” Polk said. “Obviously, you want to know what someone has because you can play better in the future. Some people will overestimate that edge, but it is nice to know what players are doing.”

Haralabos Voulgaris didn’t appear to have anyone in the audience following the action. He declined comment until the event ended.
J.C. Alvarado arrived the Rio late, but Jacobson excused his tardiness since Alvarado booked his plane ticket after play ended on Sunday and arrived in Las Vegas after the table began play. “I did the same thing for Martin in 2014 and he won the whole thing.”
Bertrand Grospellier did not have any in person relaying him information, but a friend was watching online and sending him the information via text. “You have to have the information,” he said. “It might not be that helpful, but you have to have it.”
